Adam Ali is an award winning British Libyan actor and director striving to celebrate queer Muslim visibility. He received a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination for his performance as ‘Zain’ in the season finale of Apple TV’s ‘Little America’. Red Sea Film Festival awarded Adam in the Best Actor category for his portrayal of Kamal in Europa, an Italian American feature directed by Haider Rashid that had its world premiere at Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes. Adam shines as Kai Shariff in BBC’s Waterloo Road reboot, the school’s openly gay basketball sweetheart. This is Adam’s newest endeavour in his portrayals of positive Arab queer stories. His most recent short BABA won the top prize at Iris Prize LGBT+ Film Festival in Cardiff with Attitude Magazine saying “It deserves every award going for rising star Adam Ali’s exuberant performance alone”.
